I can tell you I have the ultraviolet ones and two was not enough to show much on a 60x24x24. I am about about to try to sell them to get the panorama pro modules.

I bought a 12.5 in royal blue a couple weeks back to give it a try. I love the way it makes my corals pop. I'll be ordering another 60" worth at least. I have t5s for the main light so I dont know how many strips it would take, but they sure do make em purty!

you would be better off going with the panorama's the stunners are 6w for 45, the panoramas are around 18w for $90. the stunners are for looks not for growth.

I would say 3 to 4, That would put you at 54w to 72w , and it would fall within your budget. I would also look in to a DIY led also.
Three of these:
New 40mil 10W Super Actinic Blue Hybrid Led Panel for Aquarium | eBay

Plus this driver:
High Power Waterproof outdoor 30W 1A Led light Driver for floodlight bulb Lamp | eBay

And this Heatsink, You can probably get a cheaper heatsink, but you don't want to skimp on the heatsink, better to have too much than not enough:
200x99x45mm Heatsink, Aluminum Heat-Sink, Heat Sink for LED, Power Transistor | eBay

Some wires a dimmer and someone who can do basic soldering, So about the cost of one panorama.
